Stayed here for 4 nights with my mother. Free parking on the premises was the main consideration of my choice as parking in Sydney is pretty exorbitant. Checking-in is a breeze although you might want to inform the hotel in advance if you are arriving after 10pm. The parking lot is private and closed with a shutter. Access to the... More

Date: Aug 2015 Duration: 7 nights Room Type: Studio Apartment I had booked another hotel initially but a last minute goofup forced me to look for other option just 2 days before the start of my Sydney trip. I found this hotel quite reasonable and booked it the last minute before flying to Sydney. This hotel is situated between Central... More

No one told me that parking was so expensive in Sydney! So, this makes my stay here even a better value. Parking was easy, and checkin and staff were great. My 1-bedroom apartment was a little tired, and needed a good renovation. Nice to have a kitchen and washer/dryer. Windows were thin, so noise from street and nearby activity were... More

3 adults stayed at this place for 3 nights and were easily accommodated in a self catering apartment that had every conceivable facility. Cooking, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, kettle, massive amount of drink stuff, washing machine and dryer. It was as good as my house! Pleasant staff and really good secure parking in a great central location for budget motel rates.... More

When we got there we got that the POOL WAS UNDER CONSTRUCTION! That was the whole reason to go to this apartment! We asked if they could have notified us especially when it was NEW MANAGEMENT!

We went up to Sydney to watch Richmond versus Swans - we walked to the SCG from the Waldorf, stopped at a pub for a quick bite to eat and then to the game. With the Tigers winning ("Oh, we're from Tigerland!"), we had a great night and then back for a great night's sleep. Our studio had a small... More

This was my first visit to this apartment hotel. As the name it is a serviced apartment complex and does not offer evening dining facilities. We arrived at night and the taxi dropped us about 50 meters up Chippen Street from the entrance. While the entrance is well lit the street is not so you may wish to insist being... More

We stayed two nights in a studio apartment. While not furnished in luxurious style it is comfortable and serves the purpose. We had a small kitchen, dining table, laundry in the bathroom and a comfortable bed! The bonus was free carparking. Breakfast is basic but quite sufficient. Depending on where your room is situated you could get some noise from... More
